We arrived early morning in Hong kong after a long flight. Couldnt believe the wait of our backpacks! blimey we thought what have we let us self in for!! Nai didnt think she could move anymore and meg soldiered on! haha! After a slow coach journey(seriously 30mph on motorway) we got to our hostel on MAN%u3000%uFF26%uFF35%uFF2B%u3000ROAD yep that is the name haha! Hostel suprisingly nice and clean :) but we were on the 17th floor so meg had to hold on to the wall just to look out the window. lol! seriously though we were the only english yestday untill we saw two english guys in the lift today but seriouslt that must be it.
Last night we finally found the night market and meg got conned into buying a fake chloe handbag was so funny it is massive and
heavy and we dont know how we are going to get it to austrailia as it wont fit in her backpack haha! Nai got some sunglasses though! We walked miles last night in the wrong direction though to find this market and all because meg had the map up the wrong way again! went to this crazy restaurant didnt have a clue what was going on! they literally chuck the food at you and you have to cook it yourself. Had a chilled out drink in the cosmo pub!
Our last day though was mental we didnt get up till late. so when we did get up we thought we better do something to not waste the day. so we jumped on a random bus which took us to the harbour! meg then decides it would be fun for us to get on a ferry to a diffrent island!! when we got there we didnt no what to do so we jumped on another bus and got of with the crowd! Then we saw loads of people queing for something and decided what ever it was must be good as so many people are queing for it! so we joined it! then found out it was a tram ride to the peak! so we got really excited! :) On the tram though we didnt get a seat and literally it goes vertical! we were holding on for dear life! whilst every1 else was looking at us like we were weirdos not even bothered by it. seriously it was more loike a rollercoaster especially coming back down backards haha! it was nice up there though until we realised we had missed our last ferry back! by this point nai was just laughing she didnt know what to do and meg was almost in tears. Our flight early tomorrow so we were thinking we were gonna have to spend the night on the other island and possibly at the peak of the mountain as it seemed the last tram ride was gone.
Although luckily we found a lovelly chinese guy that spoke good english who told us we would have to get the undergrountd home. so this is what we did even though we didnt have a clue were the stations were or anythink, espesially as everythink was written in chinese. we eventually found our way home underground was mental and when we got out at station we didnt recognise anything. so meg got the map out again! so glad to get back now though haha!
Over the last three days we have found it really hard to get a good meal! its all hanging dead chickens with there heads still on and lots of raw meat and fish. especially with Nai being a veggie! but we are ok. looking forward to austrailia. you will next hear from us down under!
